Letter to Our Parents & Stake Holders

Dear Burnaby Selects Parents,

The Burnaby Selects would like to advise you we have sought legal advice concerning the future of our club, and are charting a new path forward.

One option available to us was to do nothing and see the demise of our club. Your board feels that you share our view that this option is unacceptable.

Another option was to seek another court injunction and carry on to trial in a final effort keep the Metro Select program in our hands. After carefully consideration of the time, expense, and duration involved in following this path, we have decided not to seek redress in the courts. This decision in no way negates our view that the District’s actions against our club have been entirely unwarranted and do not serve the interests of youth soccer in Burnaby.

The Burnaby Selects are launching a new purpose and vision to ensure that the strong legacy of our club continues to benefit Burnaby youth into the future. With legal advice and following careful consideration, the Burnaby Metro Selects have adopted a mandate to operate gold, silver and bronze teams beginning with the 2015-2016 season and beyond. This will include both boys and girls teams, however we may not field teams in all age groups in the upcoming season. If your child is not selected for the District metro team in the District evaluations, he or she will have a place with the Burnaby Selects. Join us as we build a bigger, stronger club.

We would like to thank all of you for your support and commitment over these many difficult months. The Burnaby Metro Select Soccer Club has been one of the finest
this province has seen. Join us in continuing that storied tradition as we redefine our purpose. Your children deserve nothing less.

More details will be forthcoming via the Burnaby Selects website with respect to specific teams to be fielded in the coming season, evaluation dates and the posting of coaching positions. In the meantime, please get in touch with any questions. And finally, good luck to all Burnaby Selects teams in their upcoming cup games.


Joe Pinto, President

U16 Burnaby Selects

The U16 Boys capped off their season winning a silver medal at the Provincial Championships in July.

The team won the Coastal Cup in April and faced a difficult task even making it to the finals with more than half the roster on the injured list. The highlight of the provincial tournament was the semi-final match against Kamloops with 5 goals scored in the last 20 minutes of the game. Fortunately for Burnaby, Daniel Johnson was able to head in the winner with just 4 minutes remaining on the clock.

Both U14 and U16 Boys Capture League MSL Titles, Qualifier to Provincials

On February 23rd the U14 (pictured) Boys, captured the 2012-2013 League Title with a 2-0 win over Coquitlam Metro Ford.  Alan Camacho-Soto, the team’s top scorer, had the winning goal.  Goalkeeper Aleksandar Kalajdzic recorded his 10th shutout of the season and had a league leading 8 goals against all season, which is also a tribute to fantastic team defense.  This is the second league championship in 2 years for this team and the closest one yet, beating Surrey CCB Pegasus by one point. The reigning Provincial Cup champions will have the opportunity to defend that title later this year, as the league championship title earned them a qualifier to the A Cup tournament.
